Microsoft has been moving into Android and iOS platforms as a key app developer even though it has its own mobile platform. The company has a number of apps for both these platforms and its popular ones are the Office applications that you probably use them on a daily basis.
Besides the Office applications, Microsoft is interested in developing other apps including the Hub Keyboard for Android which is already out and now we are getting info that the company is thinking of doing the same for iOS. We have heard about this app before and now we are getting concrete evidence that confirm that it’s on the way.
The iOS Keyboard that Microsoft is working on is called Word Flow Keyboard and comes with some unique features and is designed to make it perfect for one-handed use. this is quite different and the app utilizes and arcing layout instead of shrinking the keyboard on one side.
Check out the video of this keyboard that have been leaked online.

The app is currently in a closed beta-phase and we still aren’t sure if or even when it might be available to all users. The existence of the video sort of confirms that the keyboard exists and its official release may be very soon.
The keyboard also brings with it some personalization features such as built-in themes and the ability to use any photo you have in your photo library.
As expected, Microsoft has not said anything about the existence of this keyboard but expect the company to come out and confirm its existence if the beta testing goes on well.
